So I’m the youngest kid in my community college (14 going on 15), and I’m not totally sure if I’m supposed to be friendly and meet people or not? Is it okay to be social and make friends, or is that weird and inappropriate?

Of course it’s okay to be social and make friends! I think you have a really cool and unique opportunity to be able to be going to college at that age. You also need to be careful though because the other people in your school are significantly older than you are. You need to protect your heart and mind and make sure that you do not allow your desire for friendship become something that gets in the way of your morals. In other words, know your limits and be wise about who you hang out with. Also it’s a good idea to stay connected to people your age by joining (or continuing to attend) a youth group. It’s also helpful to have a christian adult (especially parents) who you can talk to and share with. Having friends where you go to school is really important but I know that it can be really hard when you’re younger than everyone else (I was the youngest in my class all through high school). Does this help?

Hey, that helps a ton!! Thanks so much! I’m so thankful for my youth group, and the friends I have that are my age. And as for the college friends, many of them are indeed inappropriate, but I feel like them knowing that I’m in the room makes them calm down a little. (Good thing, I guess!) Thanks again! 😀
